Welcome to Diversity, Outreach and Inclusion

Ohio State’s Shared Values recognizes diversity and inclusion as “core principles in everything we do” and “essential components of our excellence.” The College of Engineering continues to develop programs for students, faculty and staff that are centered on inclusive excellence.

The Diversity, Outreach and Inclusion (DOI) office works to support and empower members of the Engineering and Knowlton community to integrate diversity, equity and inclusive excellence into daily operations and set expectations that each individual, as well as units, are responsible for efforts. When this integration of diversity, equity and inclusive excellence is done well and is sustained over time, there can be transformative educational benefits to students and innovations that positively impact the community.

The DOI Vision: To be the national leader and model for advancing Inclusive Excellence through diversity, equity and inclusion in engineering for the 21st century.

The DOI Mission: Through shared responsibility and collaboration with university and college-wide partners, we advance diversity, equity, and inclusive excellence by:  

  • integrating the University's shared values into the daily operations of the college    
  • supporting student motivation for entering and persisting in engineering, architecture and planning
  • implementing inclusive and equity-centered initiatives for staff and faculty 

The Diversity, Outreach and Inclusion Office offers a variety of student-centric academic, professional and social enrichment programs to empower students and resources to support our faculty and staff.
